To Beat Opponent, Tennis Player Cuts Off Her Beautiful Hair In The Middle Of A Match (pics + Vid)
31 year old Russian tennis player Svetlana Kuznetsova decided that winning the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) finals was more important than keeping her long and gloriously shining hair, so in the middle of the match, she took a scissor and, like a mechanic, hacked off the hair.
She was facing her opponent, defending champion Agnieszka Radwańska in the finals in Singapore
Svetlana was trailing the defending champion 1-2 in the third set of the round robin opener on Monday when she requested a break and a pair of scissors. She then hacked off her ponytail about halfway down.
The unconventional tactic seemed to work, with Kuznetsova producing a stunning comeback from match point down to defeat Radwańska 7-5, 1-6, 7-5.
This is how she explained it:
“Sometimes you gotta do it not by best hairdressers and not at [the] best time,” she wrote under a video on Instagram.
“Every time I would hit a good shot, it would hit my eye every time and I had [to] struggle,” she said.
“I thought, ‘OK, what’s more important now, my hair, which I can let grow, or the match?’ I thought, ‘OK, I got to go for it right now’, and that’s it. I was not thinking too much, though.“I was just trying to get the best of me ... I don’t even know how much I cut there.”🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼sometimes you gotta do it not by best hairdressers 🙄🙄🙄 and not at best time ✂️✂️✂️..иногда приходится подстригаться не у лучших мастеров 🙄🙄🙄🙄и не в лучшее времяA video posted by Светлана Кузнецова/Kuznetsova (@svetlanak27) on Oct 24, 2016 at 8:22am PDT
